Muse Christmas Inspiration

It's not my turn yet to be a *muse* at Muse: ChristmasVisions, but I'm excited enough about my newest design team that I'm playing along! Here is the inspiration card from the current muse, Kimberly Wiener:  

So cute! Somehow I don't think my small town will ever end up as part of a sentiment, so I couldn't really be inspired by that, apart from size. Instead I looked at Kimberly's overall card design, her colourful main image, and use of a coloured card base. Here's what I ended up with: 

I have a giant collection of Unity Christmas stamps, and not nearly enough of them saw ink for this past Christmas, so I pulled this one out for my main image. He's stamped in black and embossed, then coloured in with markers. Like Kimberly, I matted my main panel on black, then (in my case) a green card base. The size of my snow guy meant I couldn't show as much of it! 
Look at that! First Christmas card of 2018 is done! If you come and play along, you can get a head start on your Christmas card stash, too. 

Supplies: white & black cardstock, Craft Smith green card base, Unity Gifts Galore (Snowpeep Nicholas) & Paper Smooches All Yule Need stamps, Versafine onyx black ink, Ranger clear embossing powder, Copic & Spectrum Noir markers, MFT diagonal stitched rectangle die, Tsukineko frost white all purpose ink, clear glitter Gelli Roll pen, Nuvo white blizzard glitter drops

Pin It Now!
